PITTSURGH – The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra (PSO) invites the public to enjoy this holiday season by visiting Heinz Hall to view a majestic Christmas tree and Hanukkah menorah.
The tree and menorah are displayed in the Grand Lobby and will be open to be viewed by the public from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., starting Friday, Dec. 3. They will then be open to be viewed by the public Dec. 6-10, 13, 14, 16, 17, 20, 21, 27-29 and 31. People of all faiths are invited to visit Heinz Hall and take photos of the tree and menorah, which will be lit during Hanukkah.
The 25-foot grand fir tree comes from the Rossman Farm in Ebensburg, Pa. It has been decorated with thousands of ornaments and will be illuminated with more than 10,000 lights. This year, the tree is decorated in a musical theme with red and gold accents that cover PSO tours and local communities in which the Orchestra has performed.
The tree was cut Sunday morning and brought to Heinz Hall that evening. The tree was trimmed and decorated Monday.
Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield is the Holiday Sponsor of the PSO.
